The renowned Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli has accepted the Israeli Opera’s invitation to perform a one-time concert as part of the new international opera festival at Masada-Dead Sea and Jerusalem, to be held in June 2011.

 The concert, to be held at the foot of the legendary Masada mountain and fortress near the Dead Sea on Sunday 12 June 2011, will feature popular tenor operatic arias, alongside with Bocelli’s most popular renditions. Bocelli will be accompanied by musicians from the Rishon LeZion Symphony Orchestra and the opera choir.  

 This unique concert will conclude the second international opera festival at Masada-Dead Sea and Jerusalem, which will also feature the opera Aida by Verdi conducted by Daniel Oren at Masada (4,5,9 June), and the opera Jerusalem by Verdi at the Sultan’s Pool in Jerusalem (6 June), and a visit of the Arena di Verona Orchestra and soloists who will perform Verdi’s Requiem at Masada on 3 June.
